THE Coral have announced details of their new Holy Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues EP, available digitally from December 9, 2016, on Ignition Records.

The four-track EP opens with a remix of recent single Holy Revelation by celebrated Manchester DJ/Musician Andy Votel, entitled the Holy Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues De-Mix.

Track two is a new track, After The Rain (Post WW3 Return Of The Super Turv Mix), followed by a Voyagers Vs The Coral remix of Distance Inbetween album opener Connector.

The EP closes with Unforgiven, only previously available as the B-side to the limited edition 7” of Chasing the Tail Of A Dream.

2016 has been an outstanding year for the influential Hoylake five-piece. Distance Inbetween, The Coral’s first new studio album since 2010, was released in March to some of the best reviews of their distinguished career.

The Coral embark on their second headline tour of 2016 later this week, including a headline show at Shepherds Bush Empire on Friday, December 16.

In addition to the tour, an exclusive exhibition – The Coral: Distance Inbetween – documenting the music, artwork and stories behind the album, opens on Dec 8th for two weeks only at Red House Originals Gallery in Harrogate.

The one-off exhibition will feature new unseen artwork alongside special edition prints created by The Coral’s Ian Skelly to document the songs and the stories behind the music. Also on display will be original artefacts and ephemera that inspired the creation of the album.
